Rockwell Collins Hands Cockpit Video Platform to US Army; Troy Brunk Comments

Helicopter-RadarRockwell Collins has given the U.S. Army a platform the company built to help helicopter pilots access and view drone-derived videos on their cockpits.

The Secure Real Time Video system will work to support the service branch's manned-unmanned teaming activities, Rockwell Collins said Monday.

“Giving Army pilots access to real-time video streams in their cockpits will directly improve their ability to successfully execute missions more safely and efficiently,“ said Troy Brunk, vice president and general manager of airborne solutions at Rockwell Collins.
